radical suspension quandry

hi all I'm about to install eibach springs for a 1 inch lower but I can't figure out what suspension I have. I am supposed to have m030 but the dot on the struts (fr and RR) are orange-brown while the springs have white and yellow dots. The Bentley manual says different---ROW M030??? The car was ordered direct from the factory and is a Canadian car(2001 S ). Can anyone determine this radical quandary??

This thread has most of the spring rate colors and also a very in-depth discussion of suspension setup, spring rate, dampeners, roll rate, and the effects of changing one or more components. If your car was delivered with M030 it will be listed on your options label on the underside front hood.

The Pelican site says the S M030 is red/yellow on the front and silver/red in the rear.
